A free bike tour in English in Gorky Park

English speaking Moscow community WowLocal and Moscow Free Tour project organize the free bike tour in Gorky Park on the 1st of May. This activity will be one of the numerous initiatives to promote city’s culture and history to Moscow guests who don’t speak Russian language.

During the route you will discover the history of famous Russian aristocratic families and see where they lived. You will find out that many important things which will later expand in the city had started in Gorky Park: the first open air theater, first hippodrom and botanical garden.

Everyone who speaks English, Moscow guests and its citizens, are invited to discover the Gorky Park behind the scenes. To travel long distances of the park the organizers offer the cycling trip with stops for telling the stories.
